Ocean Hiatus

There is news (http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/climate-change/how-the-pacific-has-put-global-warming-on-hold-but-not-for-long-8788403.html) that global warming is occurring somewhat more slowly than anticipated by the computer models. This is thought to be due to the deep oceans absorbing some of the heat. The effect is, however, only likely to act for a short time and the precise consequences to climate change of changing the temperatures of deep waters are distinctly uncertain. I suspect that enthusiasts for non-renewables will try to use this information to deny that there is any real problem.
